Amplify is an ambitious initiative that connects an active network of women-identified artists and curators working in the digital arts, sound and immersive storytelling sectors in Latin America, Canada and the UK. Connecting different cultures and experiences, Amplify activates a platform for dialogue on access, inclusion and gender equality between local and international industry professionals.
Amplify took place for the first time during MUTEK Montréal in 2018 with many of the participants involved in this project joining a transcontinental circulation that includes festivals and residencies in Argentina, Peru, Venezuela, Mexico and London
Amplify is an initiative of The British Council in partnership with MUTEK Montréal, MUTEK Argentina, Fundación Telefónica in Peru and in collaboration with Somerset House Studios in the UK. Amplify has the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Conseil des arts de Montréal.
